Fun trip today to Mote Marine Aquarium, and Manatee Viewing Center. Anytime we go up and over the skyway in a 240D, it’s an adventure. Sunset at the end going over the causeway, after a buggy drive up 41, was a fitting end to a day of beauty. #w123 #mercedesbenzclubofamerica #motemarinelab #motemarineaquarium #manateeviewingcenter #patientwife

Happy #SharkSaturday Everyone! Today, we are featuring our epaulette sharks, who are part of the long-tailed carpet shark family. They got their unique name because of the large black spot behind their pectoral fins, which mimic military epaulettes, or ornamental shoulder pieces. Come visit Mote Aquarium to see these guys in action! ⠀ 🦈 ⠀ 📸 : @motemarinelab @moteeducation⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #motemarinelab #moteeducation #epauletteshark #sharksaturday⠀ --------------------------------------------------------⠀ All animal collections, activities and handling are conducted under FWC permits.

This past weekend, Mote's High School Interns reconnected with nature and spent the weekend camping. The theme for the year is "Our Backyard" so they stayed close to home and camped at Oscar Scherer State Park. On Saturday they had a kayak tour with Sabrina at Conservation Foundation to learn about some of our local water ways, a walking history tour from Gail at Historic Spanish Point, and a guided night hike from Park Rangers Dan & Alyssa at Oscar Scherer State park to learn about some amazing animals that live here in our "backyard". On their way home on Sunday, they stopped at Myakka State Park and did the guided boat tour to learn a little bit more about other habitats in Sarasota County. ⠀ To quote one of the interns, "We had the best tour guides this trip!" Thank you for all of the amazing guides and organizations who took time to spend with our students and teach them a little bit about parts of Sarasota's ecosystems. ⠀ 🚤🏕️🏝️🚣🌊☀️🐢🐊🐠🦅⠀ 📸 : @moteeducation @motemarinelab@oscarscherersp @conservationfoundationgc @historicspanishpoint ⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #moteeducation #motemarinelab #motehsinterns #motehighschoolinterns #moteinterns #oscarschererstatepark #oscarscherersp #conservationfoundation #historicspanishpoint #myakkastatepark #myakkasp #forteensbyteens #teensinscience #informaleducation

Happy #turtletuesday ! We asked you last week what are some differences between Terrapins and Sea Turtles. Today we are going to look at their Habitats! Sea turtles are found in salt water, whereas terrapins live brackish water. Brackish water has a lower salt content than the ocean and is typically found where lakes, rivers or steams meet the ocean. ⠀ ⠀ Featured in our photos are 2 of Mote's resident animals.... ⠀ Hang Tough, a green sea turtle, came to Mote's Sea Turtle Rehabilitation Hospital in 1992. Mote is honored to provide Hang Tough with a life-long home, where he is thriving because of the many hours Mote animal care experts have spent helping him learn to navigate his habitat.⠀ Pearl, a Carolina diamondback terrapin, was taken as a hatchling illegally from the wild off the Georgia coast. She was surrendered to the Georgia Sea Turtle Center in 2011 and made Mote her forever home in 2013.⠀ Both of our residents are animal ambassadors for their wild counterparts.⠀ To learn more about these animals and all of our animal ambassadors visit https://mote.org/aquarium/exhibits⠀ 🐢⠀ 📸 : @motemarinelab @moteeducation⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #moteeducation #motemarinelab #turtletuesday #terrapintuesday #animalambassadors #greenseaturtle #seaturtle #carolinadiamondbackterrapin #diamondbackterrapin #informaleducation⠀ -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------⠀ All animal collections, activities and handling are conducted under FWC permits.

During the Youth Ocean Conservation Summit, students interested in ocean conservation learn different techniques and skills to develop their own ocean or environmental conservation projects. Students can work with mentors during the morning session to create and plan a project that is best for their community, school, neighborhood or anything in between. They also receive tips on how to apply for funding for their project. The Youth Ocean Conservation team offers students mini-grant application opportunities to receive funding for their projects. Last year, the Youth Ocean Conservation team awarded over 20 mini-grants to students with ocean and environmental conservation projects here in Florida. ⠀ 📸: @moteeducation @motemarinelab @yocsummit⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #motemarinelab #moteducation #yocs2018 #teensinscience #youthinscience #informaleducation #bethechange

I love educating about this lagoon (a local treasure) and its importance to many marine species. People left my booth supporting octopus research with Octo Girl gear.

This is a dolphin we call Lamda — he’s a ~10 year old male Atlantic spotted dolphin that we’ve observed in the wild since 2013. Though we saw him healthy and active during the 2018 field season, he stranded on a beach in late August. Following his successful rescue and rehab by @atlantisbahamas’ Marine Mammal Rescue Team, we worked together with @atlantisbahamas, @bmmro, @dolphincommunicationproject, and @motemarinelab to release him back to the wild this Monday. It was an incredible group effort and we hope to see Lamda next summer!

Monday was a pretty epic day in Bimini. After a successful rescue & rehabilitation, "Lamda" (aka "M&M") was released off Bimini. It was a pleasure collaborating with @atlantisbahamas, @bmmro, @wilddolphinproject, @motemarinelab and Bahamas Department of Marine Resources. Hopefully we'll have exciting updates on Lamda in the weeks, months & years to come. We'll see! #atlantisbahamas #bahamasmarinemammalresearchorganization #wilddolphinproject #motemarinelab #bahamas #dolphincommunicationproject #collaboration #atlanticspotteddolphin #teamdolphin

In September, a local art studio and gift store, The Artful Giraffe, generously hosted a fundraiser for Mote. Educator, Dana Henderson, and Animal Ambassador, Pearl the terrapin, represented Mote during the event. We are so lucky to live in a community that supports each other’s mission. Stop into The Artful Giraffe to see and purchase works from hundreds of local artists or even sign up for a class. Art and the sea go together perfectly.

Super grateful to have attended this #lionfish #workshop by REEF #reefenvironmentaleducationfoundation! Lionfish are one of the most #agressive #invasivespecies on the planet. Since their appearance here in #florida in the 1980s, their numbers have grown exponentially, and many believe they are now impossible to eradicate. They have a never ending appetite, eating so much they even get fat! Unlike native predators that relocate when prey is scarce, Lionfish will keep hunting until the local #reef populations go #extinct. In three years, they can reduce #fish biomass and abundance by 90 percent! Lionfish spawn every 2-4 days, laying 30-50 thousand eggs per spawn! During our dissection and filleting, we noticed that this female we removed from the reef was likely to spawn that very evening- making it even more special to have removed her from the reef. ☺️ #livingblue #oceanconservation #oceanwarriors #makingadifference #motemarinelab
